Anatomy for the Artist
WRITTEN BY JESSICA HIEMSTRA
ILLUSTRATED BY JESSICA HIEMSTRA
PUBLISHED BY GREENBOATHOUSE PRESS, 2009
Jessica Hiemstra’s Anatomy for the Artist follows the tradition of ut pictura poesis. As meditations on the relationship between art and poetry, they consider the ingredients of our everyday lives: phone calls to mothers, a love affair, line-ups, cooking. The suppleness of bodies, how we imagine them, how we depict them, how we desire others, how this becomes an art: this is the meat of Hiemstra’s suite.
